“Looking for a Pub with no smoking and no TVs? Look no father than Father Tom's Pub located in the historic Downtown Cookeville West Side area . Featuring 13 craft beers on tap and an excellent selection of Scotch Whiskey, the pub has both lunch and dinner selections that are pleasing to the palate. Be sure to ask the awesome staff about the daily specials.”

“Taiko Sushi on the West side is a cozy place we like and go back to often. I'm not a sushi expert, but I have liked everything so far. Had the North Pole sushi last time...YUMMY! The service is pleasant, and the food is plentiful. The miso soup is so delicious too!! If you get the nice young waiter with the curly hair, tip him well. No, I don't know him, he is just very nice.”

American Restaurant
$$
“Food was SUPERB!! Very well thought out flavorful dishes. My only gripe was, at least where we were seated, it was so noisy, we could barely hear each other. Tables were too close together. Prices were above average. Decor was very nice. Just need to get a hearing aide or go when its not busy I guess! ”
